New Mexico native Kate Keefe has suffered from fibromyalgia and migraines since 2002, and the pain from her chronic conditions almost defeated her.
“I had days where I just really hoped I didn’t wake up,” she tells HSC TV.
But a desire to engage in life rather than be controlled by pain helped Kate fight back. She found the support system she needed to begin rebuilding her life, and the University of New Mexico Pain Center was there to help her when she was ready.
“There is a light at the end of the tunnel,” Kate says. “If you are coming to this pain clinic, you have a really good shot, if you’re ready
